    damn, actually looks pretty good. really only thing I could think of is to maybe reduce the oats at the 8am meal or skip the grapefruit?

    The grapefruit i have only tried for a week as i read an article that says in helps burn fat.

    The article is here if it interests you?

    definitely grapefruit has its place in a diet, but i was thinking of 2 things - total calories and fructose in particular. Your diet is low enough in total sugars to be partially a ketogenic diet (which is nice for fat loss). Where thats relevant to the grapefruite is that some researchers believe liver glycogen levels are more likely to signal the body going into and out of ketogenic states, and fructose more directly effects liver glycogen than overall body glycogen.

    other than that, the grapefruit is a good idea if you used it entirely in place of the oats it wouldnt' be bad, but it wouldnt give the fill factor the oats do either

    Hi Musclebound,

    I done your total cals (only done weights days as I'm in a rush - but couldn't see an immediate or huge difference).

    Now obvioulsy I have had to make a few assumptions here. I make it in the region of 2400 calories, 300g pro, 105g carbs, 45g fat. You are 248 pounds, I have guessed you are mid twenties with body fat around 25%; which would mean your maintenance would be around 3000 cals.

    So a deficit of around 600 cals a day is 4200 a week, it's said that 3500 is a pound of fat (so thats around 1.2lb), so with the cardio your doing bumping it up to around 2lb a week your results so far seem to be bang on what you'd expect.

    It should be easy to take some cals away from this diet, for example veg isn't free calories, so your evening meal of veg and chicken is around 400, so you could shave some off of there. You could just have one protein shake rather than two scoops as your protein is very high anyway - I am assuming you have this with water? If it's with milk then that hundreds more cals over the course of a day. Breakfast doesn't need to be large imo.

    Long story short, cut down the portions. I always do cardio after weights as well as fasted and I find that works well for me.

    You could shift the weight by Sept, but you are going to need to go much more intense imo.

    My cardio has always been an hour on the bike in the morning and at least 45mins to and hour after weights too. Just this week I have been trying a different exercise after weights just to mix things up; the original post to the exercise is here [ The best new fat burner! ].

    I do stick in a few runs in the evenings too, and go for a few walks every too.

    I'm training for marathon running currently so consequently keeping as much muscle as poss isn't a concern of mine nowadays. I have recently been on a similar weight loss charge to what you are attempting and have got down to a 31" waist from 39" in around 4 weeks without supps.

    The only reason I say that is to highlight that it is possible, although if you are a big chap who has worked hard for his muscles and intends to keep it all at all costs, then you're only going to be looking at 2-3lb loss a week which will leave you short of your target by a bit - so you'll need to have a think about whats most important to you mate.

    any questions fire em over

    Nope, the reason you do it straight after weights is because the weightlifting releases ffa's into the bloodstreem making them easier to burn off as they are more readily available for oxidization at that time.

    ok mate so far so good!

    After weight traint which lasts about 45 mins i would take a protein shake because i have been told the workout is a waist of time if you dont get protein in straight away could i do this before cardio?

    Or i would be actually burning muscle instead of fat wouldnt i?

    Thanks again for all this help

    the whole post workout window of oppourtunity thing has been handed down along with other platitudes and is now just taken as fact by most people. There was a great post on here debating this, i'll post a link if i can find it

    Just reading lots of different views on food after cardio and eanted some more views here!

    After 45 mins starved steady cardio in the morning i have a shake with 1 scoop whey 3 eggwhites, cayannne, 27g of oats and water straight after which is my breakfast but have just read the carbs straght after would cause an insulin spike?????? So should i wait?

    i also do an hour cardio every other evening where ill have chicken and salad after how long should i leave it?

    Should i have 1 schoop whey straight after and wait to eat?

    thanks

    insulin spikes are overrated. with oats as carb source, and protein taken with it, the spike is minimal

    1 last question for now :-)
    Just finished cardio and had 200g of extra lean mince, 1 eggwhite and put on george forman to make burgers that would equal about 5g of fat maybe less after formans!

    Would this be ok?

    fat is a bit less your enemy (most likely) than carbs. still you want to try and minimize trans fats, but 5g isn't bad
